Quite possibly, one of the biggest highlights 
of Piedmont College is its fantastic music de- 
partment. It is full of people who put forth their 
best efforts to create incredible works of art 
and bring to life things that would otherwise be 
dead. Although there are several ways in which 
the music department performs, the most no- 
table is the College's Chorale which is used as 
part of the spring semester's Great Composers 

In spring semester 2006, the series called 
for a performance of Josef Rheinberger's Organ 
Concerto in G minor and Wolfgang Amadeus 
Mozart's last composition: the Requiem Mass 

The organ concerto was a magnificent fusion 
of different sounds into a mesmerizing song. 
However, the Requiem was the more powerful 
of the two. Not only did it spark wonders be- 
yond this world, but it was 
a beautiful array of voice, 
orchestra, and organ all in 
one amazing work. From 
the soft beginning all the 
way through to the tragic 
D minor chord at the end, 
the Piedmont Chorale and 
music department staff 
put their very souls into 
Mozart's tragic and final

Golf is a sport of grace and talent; here at Piedmont College, the team is just that. The teams < 

here at our school have set up wonderful relationships with fellow teammates and their coaches. Golfer . 

Ashley Rutledge says, "It's the best group I have ever played with. There is a strong sense of camaraderie . 

on the women's team. We are all here to support each other." The coaches are also viewed as inspiring . 

teachers. A love for the game of golf fuels our school's amazing teams. Many teammates say that they . 

will never get sick of golf because it's a game you can play your entire life. They also love how the game is . 

full of serene concentration, and how it gives one the feeling of solitude and peace. Unlike some sports in , 

which the coaches yell at you, in golf you can make a mistake without being scolded by a coach right on , 

the spot. It gives the athletes a sense of honor and respect. Another quality golf gives teammates is one . 

of communal openness. The teams feel that they have made lasting relationships with many members , 

of their respective teams. They also believe that golf has brought them many opportunities that will help , 
them throughout their lives.

to become a business major. 

Jennifer Pilgrim 

When I was in high school, I served 
as the State and National Vice President 
of Future Business Leaders of America 
(FBLA). I served more than 250,000 stu- 
dents worldwide in teaching practical 
business skills and how to become a busi- 
ness professional. My high school adviser 
was very influential during this time. She 
taught me everything I know. Were it not 
for this dedicated teacher, I would not be 
where I am today. 

Because of her, I realized that I wanted 
to help students in the way that she had 
helped me. I wanted to become a high 
school business teacher and FBLA adviser. 
So I switched my major to business. I am 
currently pursuing my degree in General 
Business, and I hope to receive my mas- 
ter's degree in education. With my 

undergraduate degree in business, and 
my graduate degree in education, my op- 
tions are wide open. If I decide someday 
to end my career as a teacher, I will still 
have other choices. 

I am very proud to know that my 
future is bright, and pleased with my de- 
cision to become a business major. I am 
pursuing my business degree because I 
do not want to limit myself to one specific 
area. With a degree in general business, I 
will have a broader knowledge of all sub- 
jects in business. This will enable me to be 
a better educator. I am glad that I have 
decided what I want to do with my life 
so that I may work hard toward my goal. 
I hope to someday influence young lives 
in the same way I was influenced. I hope 
that some day a student will look back on 
his or her high school career and feel more 
prepared to enter the workforce because 
of the knowledge I was able to instill in 
him or her.

Florence, Italy, home to some of the world's greatest artists and 
works of art. The Piedmont College Art Department sponsored a trip to 
Italy this maymester. It was a spectacular place to visit Michelangelo's 
David was beyond description! It was smooth, proportionate, and 
just magnificent. The Pitti Palace, which houses the Boboli Gardens, 
is a huge structure that was once a papal residence. It is now filled 
with three massive floors of renaissance paintings, sculptures and 
architecture. Our hotel was right in the middle of the city, so we could 
walk to every artistic destination in Italy. We were also taken to the 
tombs of many famous renaissance people at the Santa Croce church. 
Some tombs we saw were of Galileo, Michelangelo, and Dante. Along 
with the exquisitely designed religious structures were the countryside 
of Sienna and the remains of an ancient Roman amphitheater. We 
even got to take a day away from the city to visit and climb the leaning 
tower of Pisa. It was an interesting experience, to say the least.

Born in Lima, Peru, Coach Ena Weinstein had her first 

major sports victory in the Juniro South American track and field 

competition. She originally represented her high school, but in the same 

year she went on to represent her city and then her country, winning a silver 

medal. From that day on, she made it her goal to be in the Olympics. In 1984 

she reached that goal by competing in the first women's marathon of the Olympic 

Games in Los Angeles. In 1987, she went on to compete in the World Track and 

Field Championship in Tokyo, Japan. Now she works as a personal, over-the-phone 

trainer and as a massage therapist. 

Ena is not all sports. In school she loved drama, and pursued acting. She 

continues to satisfy her love of drama. She has recently been in a 

commercial for and has a role in the movie, 

Grilling Bobby Hicks.

I once heard someone say in a movie, "Anything free is worth saving up 
for." This is especially true for college students, specifically for ice cream! 
CAB sponsored an ice cream social and free ice cream means college kids 
high on sugar. There was a marvelous turnout with an excellent selection 
of music and dancing. There was even a spontaneous dance-off. However, 
the ice cream was the biggest hit of all. There was vanilla, chocolate, and 
strawberry with toppings to mix and match any way you please. Everyone 
was screaming for ice cream at this event.

Convocation is a yearly event to honor scholarship recipients and seniors. It brings the 
entire student body together each year. It gives students a sense that they belong to 
something larger than themselves. 

I filed into my seat. The organ filled the room with powerful, peaceful melodies as I 
awaited the beginning of the program. With the change of the music a processional of 
faculty and seniors filed in. The faculty were dressed in their college robes that con- 
veyed their sense of honor and wisdom. You could tell they had a deep sense of pride 
for Piedmont. The seniors held themselves prominently and with pride. When they were 
seated we were welcomed by President Cleere. There was then a call to worship. As I 
read the script from the program I found myself wondering what college was going to 
do for me. 

The Chamber Singers sang "Benedicamus Domino" and sounded like angels. The 
speaker, Cathy Henson, gave us inspiration for our future. Next, Piedmont recognized 
scholarship recipients. As the service closed I remember feeling so happy because I had 
chosen to go to college. For the first time I felt like I was a part of something big.

Constitution Day, September 17, 
recognizes the ratification of the 
U.S. Constitution in 1787. This year 
the holiday fell on a weekend. The 
following Monday, students and faculty 
gathered on the quad to reiterate the 
noble words of our forefathers who 
founded this nation. The holiday was 
originally called Citizenship Day, but 
an amendment in 2004 changed the 
name and required all publicly funded 
institutions to provide education on the 
history of the American Constitution on 
September 17.

Maja Ostojic 

Senior Maja Ostojic has been playing volleyball since she was 
in second grade. She grew up in the town of Kakanj, Bosnia, 
home to only twenty thousand people. Maja's school is where she 
first fell in love with the sport, and she played from then on. She 
loved volleyball so much that when she came to Piedmont College 
she joined Piedmont's team and continues to play the game 
she loves. Maja is majoring in Criminal Justice and is involved 
in the Psychology Club. Her favorite things about the school are 
its friendly atmosphere and small class sizes. But school is not 
the only thing she enjoys. She has several hobbies that include 
camping and hiking.

After expecting to lose most of the rounds at 
Vanderbilt University, my partner (Luke Story) 
and I pulled off, what we considered, a miracle. 
We managed to defeat Emory University twice 
and Samford University once. Three wins out 
of six created our lasting glory and earned us a 
place in the quarter finals. 

Having a losing season my freshman year with 
a record of 2-16 killed my confidence level, but I 
vowed to become Co-President of the team. My 
partner and I, along with the team, have made 
this a winning season. Winning rounds is not our 
sole purpose; it's only a bonus. The true purpose 
of debate in my eyes is to learn from my oppo- 
nents and teach them a thing or two. 

-Ruben Mendez 
Co-President of the Debate Team 

From rolling hills to city lights, the Debate 
Team's trip to Nashville, Tenn. and Vanderbilt 
University was an experience to be remembered. 
My week spent with intellectuals arguing some 
topics of today is something I will never forget. 
The trip truly brought the debate class together 
into a debate team. The team won its first de- 
bate trophy of the Fall '06 semester and added it 
to the President's trophy cabinet. 

This was all thanks to Dr. Janice Moss' undying 
dedication to the debate program here at Pied- 
mont College. Along with the help of her assis- 
tant coach, Ryan Baker, Dr. Moss is truly building 
an all-star team of debaters and I am thankful to 
have been a part of the team this semester.

/4 /// / LKauno co it 

By Jon Kostulakos 

I did not always want to be a teacher. When I was a junior 
in high school I was asked to join The Future Teachers of America. 
When I joined the club, I had my first field experience of observing 
a first grade class at the elementary school I attended. While I 
was observing this class, the teacher asked me if I would like to 
help teach part of a lesson. This was for social studies and was 
focusing on the armed services. In the class there were three boys 
and one girl who came from single family homes where the father 
was not part of their lives. These students always acted out of 
control, bullied other students, and performed badly academically, 
according to the teacher. The lesson started with the teacher 
introducing the subject, and these four students were disturbing 
the rest of the class. After the teacher was done with her segment 
of the lesson, I was asked to introduce the activity to the class. 
When I got up in front of that class those four students focused 
on what I was saying and demonstrating. The teacher looked at 
me in total shock when those students stopped being disruptive 
and started paying attention. While the students were conducting 
the activity, I was walking around and one of the four students 
raised his hand. I went up to this student and he told me that he 
wanted to be just like me when he grew up. From that point on, I 
know that I wanted to be a teacher for the rest of my life. Knowing 
that children need a role-model or a fatherly figure inspired me 
to become a teacher. A year ago when I was visiting that school, 
the teacher caught up with me and told me that the four students 
who normally disrupted her class became honor roll students and 
made a complete 180 degree change. Finding out about those 
students just made my choice more clear in that I am someone 
who children look up to for guidance and modeling.

Chris Leonardo 

Chris Leonerdo is a freshman tennis player here at Piedmont College. Currently 18, Chris 
started playing tennis around the age of 11. Formally Chris was involved in lots of sports but 
decided "tennis was the one." He got into it easy and learned the basics quicker than usual. 
Chris it seems was naturally attuned to the sport. His brother and sisters also play tennis. He 
enjoyed all the nice people he met while involved in tennis and enjoyed the motivation offered 
by his coaches and fellow players. Chris is very good at the game now. He feels that speed, 
agility and a good mental state is 'the way to play." Chris is not thinking of making a career in 
tennis however. Currently he has an undecided major, but feels he wants to become a physical 
therapist and plans to transfer to UGA. He doesn't plan on playing tennis at UGA, although one 
can be certain that tennis will always be a major part of his life.

Campuses make giant leaps 

The 2006-07 school year has 
been a time of great change for 
Piedmont's 109-year-old Demorest 
campus and for our 12-year-old 
Athens campus. This year, both 
campuses are undergoing major 
transformations as we add a new 
Center for Performing Arts and 
Communications in Demorest and 
dramatically expand the PC-Athens 

In Demorest, the Center 

for Performing Arts and 

Communications will impact not 

just Piedmont College but the 

entire northeast Georgia area. 

With a modern 350-seat theater, 

the Center will provide a venue for the performing arts unmatched in the region, and 

it will allow the college to showcase performances by our talented theatre and music 


The facilities for mass communications programs will be equally state-of-the-art. With 
studios for television and radio production, as well as computer labs for print and online 
media production, Piedmont students will be prepared for whatever the future holds as 
these forms of communication merge. 

In Athens, it is difficult to understate what the expansion of the campus will mean to your 
college. For the first time since opening a campus in Athens, we will have the facilities 
to meet the growing demand for Piedmont's "small-college" classes. We also will be able 
to offer programs for undergraduate students from their freshman to senior years and 
expanded graduate programs as well. 

Whichever campus you attend, I hope you enjoy using the new buildings. And for you 
new graduates, I trust you will come back to enjoy them for many years to come in your 
new role as Piedmont College alumni.

This year Piedmont students were 
given the opportunity to include 
their favorite picture of themselves 
in this year's Yonahian. The following 
pages consist of real students doing 
real things in their lives. Athletes, 
musicians, cowgirls, and much more 
can be found right here. Without us 
there is no Piedmont.
